Last week my travel New England Photography lead me to Fall River, MA. Battleship Cove was on my photo bucket list for quite some time and I am glad I finally was able to get down there for sunrise. Sunset is also a good time photographing these World War II naval vessels below the Braga Bridge. Upon arrival I explored my options while looking for a decent foreground element that I could incorporate into my composition. Not long into my quest I came across these mooring poles perfectly lined up beautifully. Equipped with a Gitzo tripod, a Canon Mark IV and 28-70mm zoom lens I got to work in the freezing morning hours. I like working with this lens as it provides a lot of freedom when composing a shot. Set at 50mm, I selected an f/14 aperture  with an ISO100 setting. The resulting long-exposure time was 25 section which provided a smooth waterscape while boats, bridge and the wooden poles remained in sharp focus. 

During post-processing I adjusted brightness, contrast, vibrancy and color saturation before removing dust spots and sharpening the final image of Battleship Cove. 

Good light and happy photo making!
